The Queen Mzansi actor, Sthembiso 'SK' Khoza, set tongues wagging on social media this week when he found himself embroiled in a sex scandal which involved clips of himself with naked girls. 

The 'inappropriate videos' which were circulating on Twitter, prompted an apology from the star; describing his own actions as 'unacceptable'.

"My actions were unacceptable, I beg for forgiveness. I take full responsibility, especially at a time we are faced with a serious pandemic. I should have made better decisions. I need to do better. To everyone I have disappointed and hurt, I am truly sorry," SK said in part.

Although the actor found himself at the center of such a scandal, according to the law, himself and the women in the videos are victims of revenge porn.

The Films and Publications Amendment Bill (signed into law by President Cyril Ramaphosa in October 2019) states that, "any person who knowingly distributes private sexual photographs and films in any medium, including through the internet, without prior consent of the individual or individuals and where the individual or individuals in the photographs or films is identified or identifiable in the said photographs and films, shall be guilty of an offence and liable upon conviction".

Legal expert Hannes Bouwer of Cavanagh & Richards Attorneys, confirmed this in an interview with Sowetan Live, adding that the penalty for this offence may include a fine for R300,000 or imprisonment for four years, or both.
